1) Coconut Milk Shampoo – Thailand
This local recipe has been passed around Thailand’s social circles. To create the shampoo, grate and squeeze a coconut to get the milk. Follow by heating the milk on the stove until the oil separates. Then spoon out the oil and let it cool before applying it to the hair just as with shampoo. It will add moisture, softness, and shine to the hair.
2) Scalp Focus – Japan
The belief among Japanese women is that beautifully healthy hair begins at the roots. Therefore according to Japan-born stylist Takamichi Saeki – hair salon owner in New York, women in Japan will use treatments to exfoliate and deeply cleanse their scalps repeatedly during the week or before every blow-dry and styling. You can acquire effective over-the-shelf exfoliating scalp products or create some at home using sugar and olive oil blended together until it creates a paste. One brand recommended by Saeki are the Nigelle LX products. He comments that they are; “very popular because they are gentle yet effective.”
3) Eucalyptus Treatment from Australia
You’ve heard of supermodel Elle Macpherson, right? Definitely check out the Aussie’s long, and glowing hair. Similar to Elle, many Australian women maintain glistening and polished hair by massaging a slight amount of eucalyptus oil into their scalp as an overnight treatment. This works to supply moisture and shine, and promotes growth.
4) Castor Oil Mixture – Egypt
In Cairo, a favorite hair treatment is castor oil mixed with crushed garlic. Also adding a drop of lavender essential oil to the combination is beneficial when applied to dry hair overnight. Follow-up by rinsing it out in the morning to acquire lush, hydrated hair.
5) Whirl Your Hair Straight – Africa
Prior to chemical relaxers and flat-irons, South African women used a process known as whirling to straighten their strands. This was where they would wrap wet hair tightly around the scalp then place a stocking over the head to hold it in place. Following this they used a blow-dryer to remove 80% of the moisture. The next step was to remove the stocking and wrap the hair in the other direction. Now they would dry the hair completely, take the stocking off, and brush the hair. The result was dead straight hair.
6) Make Your Conditioner Sweet – Romania
It is strongly believed by stylist in Romania that honey boosts highlight-hair color. It is recommended to add 1 tbsp of honey to your favorite conditioner and Voila!—it will make highlights Glow!
